Never-Ending Newt


Recommended Posts



Gingrich lost, but he hasn’t retired.

Robert Costa



After 69 years, Newt Gingrich is wealthy, a celebrity, and the owner of a tony home in Northern Virginia. His place in the history books, as the leader of the Republican revolution, has long been established.


But the former House speaker isn’t ready to fade away.




A self-professed “creature of the House,” Gingrich believes that the current group of House Republican leaders, especially former vice-presidential nominee Paul Ryan, should lift the spirits of weary conservatives. “Paul Ryan has the skill set to be a good speaker of the House,” he says. “Ryan can either be a really remarkable policy wonk or he can be a popular politician. He is one of the most popular people in politics.”


The compliment for Ryan was a blessing of sorts from one Republican visionary to another. Gingrich has left the campaign trail and Congress, but he keeps tabs on everything. And he’s glad that Republicans (and reporters) still keep tabs on him.






"What is the primary purpose of a political leader? To build a majority. If voters care about parking lots, then talk about parking lots."

Newt Gingrich
